Buying a home is a huge step, especially for first-time homebuyers. It can be overwhelming and confusing, but fortunately, there are programs and professionals who can help make the process easier. In this blog, we’ll discuss first-time homebuyer programs and what you need to know as a new borrower. 

Is there a first-time homebuyer program? 

One common question first-time homebuyers ask: “Is there a first-time homebuyer program?” The answer is yes and no. While there is not specifically a “First Time Homebuyer Program” with specific benefits for this type of borrower, there are programs that are perfect for first-time homebuyers. These programs typically offer low down payments, great rates, and reduced mortgage insurance. So, as a first-time homebuyer, it’s important to explore your options and find a program that suits your needs. 


Getting Pre-Qualified 

The first step is simple: get pre-qualified! By getting pre-qualified, you know exactly what you can afford before you start shopping for homes. Your loan officer will begin the process of educating you on what to expect and what is needed for the mortgage loan process. Your real estate agent will want the letter we generate to show you are pre-qualified to include with your offer to the seller. This shows you are a serious buyer and have the financing lined up and are ready to get started with an accepted offer.
